  • Paleo low-carb six days/week (including fasting days)
  • Mostly paleo carb-up on either Saturday or Sunday
I've only been doing this for a couple of weeks now. I'd love to hear what people think of the design.
Well I'd ask first...how do you feel and how is your strength and body composition changing? If you give all positive feedback then I would say "looks like it is working great!". Of course the first sign of overtraining or under-recovery will be decreased performance. I am sure you can adjust the fat calories during the week to sustain the energy levels needed. Then weekends you can test how much carbs are needed to replenish....or just enjoy the day off but keep a look out to make sure the bf% isn't creeping up too fast...if it is then cut back on the carbs or spread them out more evenly...fat gain like that is the "spillover" affect...and everyone's point is individualistic due to varying insulin resistance and the likes.
